TELEPHONE REASSURANCE AND FRIENDLY VISITOR PROGRAMS - FREED

FREED CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING #11097253


location_on J
  • 435 Sutton Way
    Grass Valley, Nevada

The FREED Telephone Reassurance program is for anyone feeling lonely or isolated in Nevada County. A phone bank of volunteers makes phone calls Monday - Friday to check-in, chat, and socialize. Individuals who would like to receive telephone calls can choose to receive calls from one day a week up to 5 days a week.
 
The FREED Friendly Visitor program is not conducting in-person visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, volunteers are still being matched one-on-one for individuals who prefer to have a friendly phone visit from the same volunteer on a regular basis.
 
Due to factors such as a lack of transportation or community inaccessibility, many seniors and people with disabilities go through prolonged periods of social isolation and loneliness. People who have disabilities identify numerous obstacles to community inclusion. In rural areas, especially, people are at risk for experiencing isolation which is a risk factor leading to many poor health outcomes.
